Rogers Samsung Galaxy S Captivate delayed due to a manufacturing issue

Android OS 2.1, 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800, 5 megapixel camera that records 720p HD videos, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, holds up to 32GB with a microSD… these specs sounds great don’t they. This is the upcoming and now unfortunately delayed Samsung Galaxy S Captivate.

Apparently due to a manufacturing problem, Rogers has issued a statement on their blog that the Captivate will be delayed:

“UPDATE: We have news for those who have been asking about the release date for the Samsung Galaxy Captivate. We anticipated launching earlier, but there has been a manufacturing delay. As a result, we expect the device will be on sale by mid-October. Pre-orders have also been pushed back, and we hope to make them available later this week.”

Over the past few weeks this device has teased potential customers with a possible launch date, then a pre-order page went live only to be taken down a few minutes later. The good news is that it’s only been delayed not canceled… when it actually becomes available it will retail for $149.99 on a 3-year.
